- SIMUMAK will count on ITCL as a preferred technology partner for its technical collaboration needs and R&D projects.
- The collaboration seeks to boost developments in simulation, virtual reality and procedural scenarios, which contributes to the improvement of road safety and occupational risk prevention.
Burgos-Madrid. June 21, 2021.
ITCL Technology Center and SIMUMAK join capacities and knowledge and start a stable technical collaboration in projects related to the development of driving simulators and procedural scenarios, in which both entities have several synergic lines of work.
Thus, ITCL becomes the technological partner of SIMUMAK; a Spanish company belonging to the Everis Group that has extensive experience in the development of simulation solutions for the automotive, construction, mining, defense and logistics sectors. In its 15 years of existence, it has more than 5,000 simulators installed in more than 19 different countries.
Both entities have signed a collaboration agreement for the next three years based on the synergies detected and the possibilities of joint development. Thus, SIMUMAK will count on ITCL as a preferential technological partner for its technical collaboration needs and R&D projects; and ITCL will do the same in the promotion of initiatives and projects of different nature.
To this end, mixed work teams will be formed with personnel from both centers to advance in new solutions for simulation systems and procedural systems.
Both ITCL and SIMUMAK have extensive experience in the field of simulation and procedural scenarios.
David Morán, CEO of Simumak, says he is very satisfied with the agreement: “It will allow us to give a boost to various aspects of the developments and projects of both companies. Having joint teams can be very positive”.
From ITCL this alliance is framed in its work philosophy of direct cooperation with companies. ITCL’s Virtual Reality technical team, led by researcher Javier Melús, is currently a national reference in the design of training simulators and the generation of virtual scenarios. The director of ITCL, José María Vela, explains that the orientation of the work of the researchers to the direct needs of the business world is the key to the success of the Technology Center.
The collaboration between ITCL and Simumak seeks to promote through R&D the developments in simulation, virtual reality and procedural scenarios of both companies. Thanks to this, these advances are applied in projects that contribute to the improvement of road safety, occupational risk prevention and, in general, to cover a wide range of needs of companies and society.
